Sandra Marcela's story

Sandra is 24 years old and she lives in the town of Barranquilla. She engages in designing and creating bathing suits and accessories. She has been running this activity for 2 years, and she started it after having studied Fashion Design at a professional level at the University. Her activity is her life project, and she is very happy with her job. She sells her bathing suits in the fairs, through social networks and to her friends. Sandra has requested a loan to Fundación Mario Santo Domingo in the past, and this has helped her increase her working capital and her production. She is now requesting her second loan to Kiva in order to keep on carrying out her activity by buying more products for her new bathing suits designs. Sandra dreams big, as she dreams of owning a national renowned brand. She is currently single but she would like to have a family and a house of her own, and for this reason she keeps on working and dreaming of her success.
